Tesla Scraps Plan On Model S Plaid Plus

The Plaid model set to go on sale June 10 will sell for around $120,000 with a range of 624 kilometers, with the same acceleration capacity as the Plaid+.

Tesla Scraps has abandoned a plan for an ultra-deluxe Plaid+ version of its Model S vehicle, according to founder Elon Musk.

Musk said in a tweet Sunday that the juiced-up Plaid is “just so good,” that there is no need to go further with the Plaid+ model.

The planned Plaid+ priced at $150,000 would have achieved a range of 830 kilometers (515 miles) with acceleration to 96 kilometers (60 miles) per hour in just two seconds.

“Model S goes to Plaid speed this week,” Musk tweeted. “Plaid+ is canceled. No need, as Plaid is just so good.”

He claimed the new model is the “quickest production car ever made of any kind.”

Tesla’s move comes as all automakers struggle with a shortage of parts, especially microprocessors, which have been hitting a variety of manufacturing and technology sectors.
